THE BUTCHER AND THE COOK | HOW TO BUY AND COOK MEAT
Baking fruit helps to keep its shape. Pop the plums in the oven at the end of cooking a roast and dessert will be ready by the time you finish the main course. Serve the plums warm or cold with ice-cream, Greek yogurt or sour cream. Add a sprinkling of crushed nuts and a drizzle of maple syrup for an extra treat. Plus variations on the recipe for vanilla plums, cardamom plums and more.
You rarely see tongue in butcher’s shops now yet any Irish childhood would be bereft without it.Ox tongue has a buttery texture and a deep savoury flavour. A whole ox tongue from a butcher weighs about 1kg and costs 7-8 euro according to James Kenny of the The Brown Pig Butchers in Terenure in Dublin who can see signs that it’s coming back into fashion again as people look for meaty cuts that are economical and low in fat.
